I'VE come to the conclusion that there’s a lot to be said in favour of Jeremy Corbyn. I mean it’s not often you come across a politician who, however much you might disagree with him, is clearly a man of principle and integrity.

The contrast could not be greater – could it? – between him and the other side of Labour politics, the so-called New Labour of Tony Blair, Peter Mandelson, etc (actually there was nothing new about it at all, as it represented a tradition of greed and manipulation that extends back through Harold Wilson, George Brown and Alfred Robens to the days of Jimmy Thomas and his cronies who betrayed the workers in 1926).
